A fire razed the Shoppersville Supermarket branch in Katipunan Avenue, Loyola Heights Thursday morning, Radyo Inquirer 990AM reported.

According to the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), the fire started at around 3:40 a.m. First alarm was raised more than an hour later and it escalated to second alarm shortly.

The blaze continued to intensify by 6 a.m. and fifth alarm was raised just before 7 a.m., prompting the BFP to call for assistance from nearby barangays.

Firetrucks from Valenzuela City responded but the thick smoke made it difficult for the firefighters to put out the fire.

A nearby gasoline station was also placed under alert.

The fire was declared under control at 9:51 a.m.

No one was reported injured.  KC Tayam, INQUIRER.net/KS/rga
